NYX Matte Lip Cream

I used to hear about these lip creams all the time through watching YouTube and always wanted to give them a go. They had great reviews, and of course they are cruelty free… so I thought I would give them a go!

The description on the NYX website is quite accurate:

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite. – (NYX Website)

Colours purchased: Prague, Ibiza & Istanbul

  • Istanbul: Described on website as ‘clean pink’
  • Prague: Described on website as ‘matte merlot’
  • Ibiza: Described on website as ‘matte deep rose pink’ – personally I feel like this colour comes of more coral then pink.

Swatches with no lip liner.

Texture: The Matte Lip Creams have a mouse like texture that is light and fluffy. They are a matte texture, v the title state, and are quite comfortable to wear.

Lasting Power: I apply this at 6:30am and it is still on my lips at 2pm. The comfortability of the lip cream wears off as time goes on, but I feel as though that is expected of a matte lip product. Although I say the comfortability wears off, it is definitely very comfortable for the first 4-5 hours of wear.

Pigmentation: SUPER pigmented. I only need one layer of the product in relation to pigmentation purposes. The colours I have tried go on smooth and even.

Scent: It is very sweet, quite enjoyable… I dig it!

I would recommend this product!

Rating – 8/10

*PLEASE NOTE – I have just found out that NYX was bought out by Loreal. Therefore, the brand NYX is registered as cruelty free HOWEVER Loreal still sells to China.
